Autumn is here, and leaves are falling...

There’s a crispness in the air, and the holidays are approaching…

Lake House Health & Learning Center will open its doors on Saturday, Nov. 13, at 932 Lake Ave., for its Fall Health & Gift Fest and celebrate its fifth anniversary.

We’ll transform our facility into a cornucopia showcasing local artisans, shopkeepers, health professionals and health resources who will share their wares with the public -- just in time for holiday shopping..

Among the treasures you will find will include jewelry, purses, photography, art, crafts, natural soap and body products, Chinese healing teas, cookbooks, cultural gift items, and gift certificates for massage, coaching, personal development sessions and other health services.
  • Carol Smith ( Harmony Botanics ) will offer a line of natural body washes, body oils and lotions, lip balms and soy candles that have been scented with pure essential oils.
  • Kathryn Rouse ( MayaWorks ) will offer the colorful textiles woven by Guatamalan women along with other handcrafts from this fair trade nonprofit organization that promotes economic development for Mayan women and their families.  
  • Sara Lancaster ( Re.told Journals ) will offer handmade vintage book and eco-chic journals.
Ben Lehner of Circa Celeste ( Circa Celeste ) will bring soups and muffin mixes to purchase for gifting or for yourself to make the holidays tasty and easy for entertaining friends and family.

In addition, Helene Hellesen, certified massage therapist and Reiki master and owner of Massage Pause , will offer chair mini-massages and gift certificates.

Karen Carnabucci, creative arts psychotherapist and licensed clinical social worker at Lake House Health & Learning Center , will demonstrate the use of the Tarot images for personal growth and answer questions about experiential and non-traditional psychotherapy. Her Lake House cookbook will debut with natural  and healthy snack, food and beverage favorites collected through the five years at Lake House.
Arthur Shattuck, practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine and owner of  Roots And Legends , will offer healing teas and quality medicinal chocolate, miso soup and a miso cookbook and answer questions about food for healing.

Michele Foy, life coach, will demonstrate her method for communicating directly with the subconscious with the use of a pendulum. She will show exactly how to achieve pain relief, stop smoking and get rid of fears that are interfering with living your life to the fullest. She will offer a free instruction packet and you may purchase a "Phone for the Subconscious," if you feel that you might need one.
In addition, visitors will have the opportunity to take a look at a full-spectrum light box that is a non-medication alternative to Seasonal Affective Disorder, sometimes known as "winter blues" or "winter depression" due to the lower level of sunlight in the winter.

Door prizes, snacks and giveaways will add an extra bit of fun, and participants will have an opportunity to pick up a free copy of the 2010 Guide To Health, Wellness & Creative Living , the regional directory to health resources, and learn about the new Wild Root Market .
